    • @Stephanie Stewart just wanted to make sure you saw this post.  And I sent you a private message with some other info.   
    • I found this screening you can do through Dr. Aimee.  https://eggwhisperer.com/how-it-works/. She basically faxes a lab slip to a Quest lab of your choice--you do the blood draw and schedule a consult with her to discuss. The combined cost is $285.  I know there is a similar service with a doctor somewhere in Florida too but haven't been able to locate her.  You can also use the Modern Fertility test for $159 which allows you to do the collection at home or go to a local Quest lab.  The price includes a call with a fertility nurse to discuss the results and a forum to ask questions. It looks like it might test for more things than Dr. Aimee's test because it tests, AMH, FSH, Estrodial, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, Testosterone etc.  Note--the above is an Amazon affiliate link so I will get a small credit if you order the test via Amazon.   
    • Hi Everyone, Here is a link to the podcast I mentioned during the call yesterday.  The episodes that feature donor-conceived adults are "Queerspawn" "Emma has two moms" and "Viral sensation, Zach Walhs..."  (all are two-mom families). SMC-specific stories include "Why don't I have a dad?" "Making a baby on her own" and "Live with Staceyanne Chin".  I look forward to Sarah's podcast every Wednesday and this one every Monday!  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/if-these-ovaries-could-talk https://www.ovariestalk.com/   The Longest Shortest Time and The Birth Hour also have a few good SMC stories.  Mikki Morissette's Choice Mom's Podcast is a little dated but still good and definitely worth a listen! All of these have both "known donor" and "anonymous/sperm bank donor" stories included.  I know that the Single Mother's By Choice organization also had a panel a few years back with teenagers and young adults of SMCs and there is video out there somewhere (I think you can even purchase a dvd of the panel from them) but I'm not exactly sure of the details. Have a great week 🙂 A
    • I love the Egg Whisperer Show with Dr. Aimee.  She's a fertility doctor in the SF Bay Area.  She has great info about getting pregnant and lots of good medical info.  I particularly like this episode because she goes into detail about what supplements you can take to improve eqq quality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYMgdC0u02w I've seen many protocols from fertility doctors and CoQ10 seems to be on everyone's list.  She also did a recent episode called: How Old Is Too Old To Have a Baby.  Feels relevant to some of you. https://eggwhisperer.com/show/ And, I was a guest on her show if you are curious about our conversation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhijwWLB2Js&t=459s Hope you find these helpful.  Sarah 
    • Here's the 5 part series I mentioned about working moms from the Longest Shortest Time. https://longestshortesttime.com/its-a-real-mother/ And this is the episode interviewing Andrea Silenzi (who is now the host) about dating when she knows she wants kids. https://longestshortesttime.com/episode-119-dating-when-you-want-kids/ AJ had also mentioned the podcast: If These Ovaries Could Talk And my podcast, Motherhood Reimagined. Hope these are useful.  Please add any that I missed!
